Gonna be hard to top this one. Poured a golden brown, medium head minimal lacing ... and a terrific aroma of candied sugars, figs and raisins. Excellent body with medium sweetness, hints of vanilla, dark fruits and some caramel. excellent carbonation and a solid finish. I think what sets this one apart form others it the incredible balance between the carbonation, flavors and alcohol. Hard to live up to the hype of being the highest ranked beer in the world - but definitely something everyone must try if you have the chance. It is worth it! Great beer for my 40th!!
